“Fighting With My Family” to premiere at Sundance

As reported by Deadline earlier today, the Dwayne Johnson-produced film Fighting With My Family, a film centered around the life of WWE Superstar Paige and her family, will be screened at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 28.

Sundance runs the largest independent film festival in the United States, and has been the spot for official world premieres of movies like Get Out and Eddie the Eagle in recent years.

Fighting With My Family is a joint venture between MGM Studios and Seven Bucks Productions, Johnson’s very own production company. (Yes, if you’re wondering, the name of the company is based off of Johnson’s famous “seven bucks in my pocket” story.)

The film tells the story of Paige as a young budding wrestler who, along with her brother Zak, earns a tryout with the WWE after years of experience in a pro wrestling-centered family. When only Paige earns a spot in the WWE developmental pool, she’s forced to leave her family and navigate the topsy-turvy, hard-nosed world of professional wrestling on her own.

Fighting With My Family stars Florence Pugh as a young Paige. Pugh’s additional noteworthy screen credits include The Commuter and the upcoming remake of Little Women. Jack Lowden co-stars as Paige’s brother Zak, while additional cast members include Nick Frost, Lena Headey, Vince Vaughn and Dwayne Johnson himself. The film is directed by Stephen Merchant.

Inspiration for this film struck Johnson on a night in London where he couldn’t sleep. He managed to catch the documentary that inspired the movie, The Wrestlers: Fighting With My Family, and in that, the idea for this feature film was born.

The film is also being jointly produced by WWE Studios.

Seven Bucks Production is the company behind recent smash hits like Rampage, Jumanji: Enter The Jungle and popular TV programs like Ballers and The Titan Games.

Fighting With My Family is due for wide-spread release on Feb. 14.
